Wandering poet #1 – I like apples

9 Dec

I’m starting a new series on The Orange Backpack. One which will (hopefully) be a regular thing. Every Friday I will post a short poem in any format I choose related to wherever I am in the world or something I have done recently. They will all be related to travel and barring tragedy or natural disaster you will always see them here. I will call it WANDERING POET! Don da da  doooooon

This week’s poem is  a Haiku. Which if you weren’t forced to write them in your elementary school class, is a Japanese style of poetry which contains 3 lines. The first line is 5 syllables, second is 7 syllables, then the third is 5 again and it is not supposed to rhyme. I used Wordcalc to verify the syllables of all the words just in case someone feels like challenging me. I will also accept submissions which you can send to talktome@the-orange-backpack.com
